This Ancient Boro’ was formally known as the Honeymoon Chinese Restaurant and prior to that Loong Sing Chinese Restaurant dating back to 1968. But prior to closing it’s doors in 1968 the site had for many years been a Public House and had been owned by Whitbread and known as This Ancient Boro’, prior to that it had been managed by a Obadieh Edwards (the family are still affiliated with the town) owned by The Tenterden Brewery and called The New Inn. Therefore, having acquired the site in May 2018, it seemed only right and fitting that it should return to it’s former name. There are still many people in the area that can still remember it as a pub, indeed it was the local of Ray’s (co-owner) father although he maintains he’s too young to have gone in there himself!!!

The new incarnation of the site is a mixture of the old pub itself and the relatively new idea of a Micro-pub. It has all the appeal of the Micro-pub idea, which is, NO LIVE MUSIC, NO GAMING MACHINES AND NO PROLONGED TELEPHONE CONVERSATIONS. (Our ethos is if you wish to hold a long telephone conversation, by all means use our seated area outside). The main variation from the original idea of a Micro pub (which is the Butchers Arms at Herne in Kent) is that we will be doing food in the form of Tapas, which we feel we feel will be as sociable as a micro-pub is intended to be. There will of course be a wide range of Ales and Ciders, with the intention of making available, styles of beer (such as Porters, Stout’s and Mild’s along with various Bitter’s) and Cider’s from around the country. Keg products such as Lagers Guinness and gassed Cider, will not be available, however, there will be some bottled Lager. We will also be featuring a wide range of Gin’s, with Anno from Marden in Kent supplying our House Gin and House Vodka.
